The world of recreational and professional photography is going to change as we know it, thanks to the Fujifilm 100-MP medium-format camera that has just debuted in India. Fujifilm’s last camera drop was last year, and after a long wait, the glorious Fujifilm GFX 100 has arrived. Featuring the latest innovation, this is a large format mirrorless digital camera with a whopping 102MP BSI CMOS sensor, in-body image stabilization (IBIS), uncropped 4k 30 frames per second video, and Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF). It is priced at Rs 7,86,999.
What is it and who is it for?
This large format 100-MP shooter is for serious, quality-driven photo artists, who want to shoot masterpieces on a comparatively compact, large-format mirrorless camera. Its 100-megapixel sensor delivers stunning images for large print work (billboards and art gallery prints). Apart from the pixel jump, key changes compared to its predecessor, GFX 50S, include a significantly faster AF performance that now uses a hybrid phase-detection system, and in-body image stabilisation up to five stops which is ideal for shooting in low-light situations. There is also raw capture in 16-bit, for greater dynamic range and a ton of post processing flexibility.
It also shoots high quality uncropped 4K video on its entire large format sensor, using borrowed video features such as IBIS and Auto Focus Tracking from its younger siblings such as the XT-3. All in all, it makes this camera perfect for hybrid shooters who want to own one camera that does all.
The GFX 100 sets a new precedent because it delivers the highest quality images while making the process seamless. Fashion, celebrity, and fine-art photographers can now enjoy the best quality images that medium format sensors offer, with the mobility required for creative freedom that full-frame cameras offer in one camera. It’s a beautiful crossway of quality and convenience.
